Default Yellow banana differences

I have noted some differences regarding my two yellow bananas. The large one I bought from Triple Oaks Nursery and the smaller one I ordered on Ebay. The smaller banana appears to have a fatter trunk and appears that it will reach maturity at a much shorter height. The other one is bigger of course but has a narrower trunk and appears to reach maturity when it is taller. What do you guys think? Are the differences worth noting or am I seeing things? LOL!

Default Re: Yellow banana differences

The first one (long slender leaves) is an ornamental banana, Musa Lasiocarpa. Don't know on the second.
